How's that "Trump Russia Collusion is bullshit" working for the Jackass Radicals these days?

https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/the-all-purpose-big-lie-the-ruskies-did-it/

These are folks who hate Hillary so much, they don't want anything to detract from the idea that the loss is her fault and the fault of us who supported her.

The problem is, the facts are solidly against them.

84. "Used to" and once were able to participate in

rational conversation. Those who were here during the primary probably all remember DUers who increasingly aligned with stories touting an intensely corrupt Democratic Party and candidate -- until they fell right off the cliff. They'd rejected reliable information sources that would have helped them keep at least one foot solidly anchored in reality.

At least that pack has found a place to belong. From their alternate reality:

"And for the DNC's next trick: Theyíve already begun their next media campaign. For the next presidential election they intend to introduce a faux-populist. Joe Kennedy. ... You know itís all a part of a well orchestrated media campaign when the great orange satan likes him. But all you have to do is mosey on over to opensecrets to find out heís bought and paid for by Bank of America and the Crescent Capital Group. In other words, heís just another Bankster shill. Heíd be just another Obama or Hillary bot.

Donít let the propaganda machine fool you. He might parrot the right words, but like Obama, like Dean, like many before he hasnít done nothing.

Satan, The Crone, Iwalani88 and 13 others like this"

(Btw, how many murders do these people who want to rescue the Democratic Party from evil have Hillary up to now? )

through association with increasingly extremist ideas and circles is not just a whim that one may get tired of. It is an often implacable syndrome that does change the thinking of millions.

When times get better many will calm down, but that is not the same as willingness to reconnect with fact- and knowledge-based discussion.

Last edited Sat May 20, 2017, 12:32 PM - Edit history (1)

That's a propaganda technique to avoid dealing with the issue(s) at hand. You seem to engage in it a lot which means you can't articulate an argument on the issue. I recommend doing more reading if you have so much trouble coming up with non-fallacious arguments.

Second, no the Jackass Radicals are nothing like me in 2008. For one thing, my opinion was subject to change based on evidence and facts. They are rabid, and crazed to the point that many boasted of voting Trump because they didn't get their way in the nomination process.

26. There is much smoke, but little actual fire apparent.

But if the facts do come out, and indictments are handed down, no matter the outcome, hard core Trump supporters will blame the liberal media for attacking Trump and ignore the substance.

But no matter how far it spreads, is the Russian connection a stronger factor than deliberate gerrymandering and voter suppression in the final outcome?

46. Everyone on both fringes always thinks they have the key to motivating non voters

 

"If only someone was nominated who was truly conservative or truly progressive, we would have all those voters come out and vote for them!!!111!!11 elevens!" the story goes.

We have progressives running in races throughout the country. And except for very blue districts 99% of the time they get shellacked.

Same with very right wing candidates running outside of very red districts.

Why this fantasy persists can only be explained by one of many psychological defense mechanisms that people employ to prevent seeing the facts clearly.

60. Are you counseling to write off the unmotivated?

Perhaps one of those "psychological defense mechanisms that people employ" is writing off those who are not attracted by 2 flavors of corporatism.

The fact that people on the left and right object to these trade deals, the fact that people on the left and right are increasingly in favor of a "Medicare for all" option suggests that there are places of agreement. Now all we need is for the politicians to recognize what is happening. But that recognition might necessitate forgoing lavish corporate contributions and lucrative speaking deals.

You can see several folks here trying to defend them, some via the distraction of attacking me.

I am going to continue bring them up as well as the craziness they post for two reasons:

1 - Just like with Old Elm Tree which was a split-off site a few years back, that site will become defunct at some point and guess to where all of them will try to come back?

2 - Some of them are still here. I suspect that anyone who defends them probably participates over there.

We need sunshine in both cases

33. I need a shower after a look at that troll nest.

Looks like:
25% Rothschild conspiracy theorists,
25% unconfessed misogynists, and
50% purely stupid

39. Yes and don't forget they all used to be here.

 

Their nastiness, bad arguments and plain old insanity used to infect this forum.

They are going to try to return one day too. It has happened before with another site of DUers who broke away from here.

36. I never go there

but I've seen other "leftie" sites that are pushing the idea that "Russia isn't our enemy" the implication being, I guess, that all the fuss about our executive branch being co-opted by Putin is misguided--the "new McCarthyism" and all that.

True ideologues never let facts or nuance get in the way of their march toward the workers' paradise.

40. They have a lot of sacred cows at stake that prevents them from dealing with facts in this situation

 

One of them is Edward Snowden. If Putin is behaving like an enemy, then Snowden sought refuge with an enemy. That would reflect badly on him so it simply cannot be so regardless of the facts.

What always get me is that these folks were supposedly on "our" side protesting an unprovoked war of aggression when Bush did it in Iraq but they are apologists for Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

44. Manafort

It will come out that Manafort collided with Russia when he was running Trump's campaign. Zero doubt there was a lot more than that, but at a minimum Manafort worked with Russia closely.

What they will likely find is that Trump's campaign provided lists of voters to target for Facebook fake stories. The target marketing was very sophisticated and collusion would have been almost assured.

51. They're clearly not interested in facts.

I'm still awaiting an explanation of how Hillary - who, according to JPR all last summer, was dying of a dozen fatal diseases, managed to pull through.

There were literally hundreds of posts about how she was wearing a full-body-brace to stay upright, and used a body double to appear at rallies because she was so debilitated. And all the while she was dying, she still had the strength to murder several political opponents.

I've yet to see anyone there comment on her truly miraculous recovery after being at death's door for her entire campaign.

56. And that is one of many completely insane lines of thinking promulgated there.

 

All in the interests of undermining Democrats.

As you know they used to do that here as much as they could get away with doing it.

And when their "theory" is proved to be untrue via facts coming out or the passage of time, like the Hillary on deaths door theory, they have already moved on and dont address how stupidly crazy their previous theory was.

53. I tried to understand that Big Lie of the 21st Century post, but failed.

It's a hot day, maybe I can't think good, but really, it made no sense. It's amazing that all these twisted conspiracies about Deep State seem to completely leave out the Republican Party, as well as reality (of course).

67. Simple solution.

 

If there is such a mountain of proof -- actual proof, not 'former official anonymous source who understands the way this person thinks' -- then simply toss it on a site and spread the site name on Twitter. We're talking about a four hour job most likely and a clearinghouse for us to work from. Doubt is best beaten by being chipped away with truth.

It shouldn't take long to collate all the facts. Facts aren't hard to sift through, after all. Name fact, name source and link evidence. Rinse and repeat. I know it'd be invaluable for me, as not having a tv really keeps me from having much to work with on this line of conversation (too many fake things coming out to try to keep track of).

EDIT: It occurs to me that maybe someone already has. If so, PLEASE link it for me!

75. That's not how government agencies usually handle evidence. We've got to wait until ...

they finish their investigation.

Until then, leaks, anonymous sources and hints by politicians/officials is all we get.

72. Aren't some of those people over there very pro-Russia in general?

Basically the russophiles who seem to think Russia is the next best thing since sliced bread? I recognize a few names who always struck me a such.

77. Thanks for the report

During the election season, I would occasionally wander over there for some contrasting diversions. But too many of their posters are living in a alternate plane of reality.

I remember the vitriolic discussions that took place on DU when some of JPR's original members were posters here. I'm glad that they have their own tar pit to play in.

80. While I admit that it would be easier to stomach JPR

 

If they censored posts from the fraction of its members who are dedicated Russophiles (you know, the kind of yahoos who troll Amnesty International's Facebook page every time they expose Assad's genocide in Syria or Putin's proxy invasion of Ukraine), I am trying something else . . .

I ignore those posts and read the ones which address issues in which we at DU and at least some at JPR share a common interest.
